streamyx, they r quite notorious in the past. now after i subscribed, suddenly they behave well Laughing

i guess now is quite ok, downloading from microsoft reach about 50 -> 60 kbyte/s. my package is (512 kbits / second = 64 kbyte / second). the highest download speed i got using uTorrent (BT client) is around 43kbytes/s.

but i still wanna say, they r money sucker. u try imagine, they provided dial-up 56kbps (7kbytes/s) at RM 1.50 (USD 0.40) per/hour, imagine,

i got 512 kbps with RM 66 (USD 17) (unlimitted usage per month)
if i use slow dial-up, (1.5 x 24)x30 = RM 1080 (USD 284)

they r definately "money sucker". they make poor people more poor. i just wish the CEO of this ISP (Telekom) read this and plez make the dial-up access fee more (resonable and cheaper)

but the reality is, our society is being controlled by stupid and greedy fellows. those "good & clean one" dead already. the worse is, there are more "bad & stupid & greedy" citizen compare to "good" one.

how many minister r being appointed because of their dignity & knowledge? many of them r just using "under down-table relationship" wtf... Evil or Very Mad wtf...

LAN 300 Kbits/s (40Kbytes/s download speed) in and out, no limit - $29.

And Dial-up is not that bad - you can easily download a few Gb's file. Only problem, that it takes 14 nights...

Reviving an old topic.

S. Korea, Japan have world's fastest Internet links
Quote:
South Korea boasts the world's highest average connection speed at 14.6 Megabytes per second (Mbps) and also has six of Asia's 10 cities with the fastest link-ups, all with average speeds above 15 Mbps.

Japan had the second highest average connection speed of 7.9 Mbps, followed by the Chinese territory of Hong Kong with 7.6 Mbps, said the report by US-based network provider Akamai Technologies.

The other countries in the top ten are Romania, followed by Sweden, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark and the Czech Republic, with the United States at 18th place, with an average speed of 3.9 Mbps.
My WAN side VPN is 1.5Mbs, but usually my connection speed to the VPN is slower since my VPN is in another country from where I usually am. In some countries that I visit I can completely saturate the VPN, in other countries I can hardly get it to 10%. The Internet is certainly not the same experience for everyone. Where you live or work will make a big difference.

I was gonna ask why is Japan's 7.9 Mbps so high since I have 8Mbps... but then i saw Romania is third... I certainly didn't expect that tbh.

I'm very surprised by USA's rank, I did know they weren't first, but 18th position is way too low for an Internet pioneer country Confused

USA
ISP: Comcast
down: ~8Mb/s
Up: ~2.5Mb/s
250GB monthly limit, dynamic IP
~$45/month

But those speeds are just over a crappy wireless adapter. I haven't really been on the computer wired to the router in a long time(although the speeds probably wouldn't be that much better on that one).

Most ISPs here don't care about providing fast speed, they just care about profit.

Akamai's State of the Internet (reports and cool web tool)

The whole world should go wireless. Wires are so last century.

USA
ISP: Comcast
down: ~1Mb/s
up: ~256kb/s
dynamic IP
~$20/month (includes required cable TV, don't use it Sad)

Monopolistic profit pigs - both AT&T and Comcast. I'll bounce between them to grab the cheapest deal -- don't really need the bandwidth.

I agree, besides being very expensive for the crappy service they give (you should get around eight times the download bandwidth for that price)... there's also the TV required crap... The USA internet model seems to remind me just how profit-greedy corporate America is.
